Elizabeth Buchanâ's New York Times bestseller Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman was hailed as â?a thoughtful, intelligent, funny, coming-of-middle-age storyâ? by The Boston Globe. Now sheâ's back with another wise and entertaining novel about a woman who veers off the beaten pathâ?and finds much more than she bargained for. After nineteen years of being the perfect wife to an ambitious politician, Fanny Savage is restless. Tired of merely keeping quiet and looking good at public engagements, she remembers the career she abandoned and the life she left behind as a successful partner in her fatherâ's Italian wine business. She has devoted two decades to being the Good Wife. Was it worth it after all? Could it be time for a trip back to Italyâ?to the pleasures of sun, wine, and food? Could it be time for . . . a change?
Fanny Savage is a politician's wife, which means that her role is to be patient, loyal, and utterly lacking in ambition of her own. She really struggles to be a good wife and mother, but she can't forget her previous life, as a partner in her father's Italian winery, and she finds that what she wants most of all is not her husband's reelection, not more teas and dinners, but--a trip to Italy.
